Local Media Contact Lists

While many companies have great ideas and can draft press materials, the more difficult part is getting that information to the appropriate news outlet. CHA is proud to offer local media contact lists for CHA member companies. These lists will identify media outlets and primary contact information at each of the media outlets in your local market.

How to Get Your Local Media List?
To secure a local media list, simply send a request entitled, “Local Media List Request,” along with your CHA membership number to membership@craftandhobby.org and CHA will develop and e-mail a local media list (based on your CHA membership address on file) normally within two business days. CHA Local Media Contact Lists are limited to one list per year, per company, and to companies with CHA membership addresses listed in the United States or Canada only. Companies interested in national media outreach may contact Catherine Martell, at 201.835.1207 for more information.!
